168 Lujiazui Xi Lu

An aeroplane-themed restaurant, complete with wait-staff dressed like flight attendants, fake overhead lockers, blue strip lighting, fasten seatbelt signs and a huge menu with dishes from around the world, many served aeroplane-style on little partitioned trays.

It's certainly authentic, in that the overpriced food is bland and largely tastes like it's come from a microwave, and the service is negligible but the idea of a 30-page menu with dishes from places ranging from Thailand to Italy and the UK was never really going to work. Overpriced items include a baked mixed seafood rice (48RMB), which comes with plastic-y cheese and fake crab sticks, and oily Thai-style shrimp pancakes (58RMB).
